Movies I’ve watched, week three

4. Vanilla Sky
I consider myself a Cameron Crowe fan, love a lot of his movies. But if you’re going to cast Tom Cruise in a part, perhaps it’s not best if you have him play an unsympathetic rich and handsome guy. Yeah, he’s got problems, but I stopped caring after a while. There’s actually a clever little story here, but the movie runs too long and the rest of the cast (Penélope Cruz, Kurt Russell, Jason Lee, Tilda Swinton) can’t save it. I still haven’t seen Elizabethtown, but now I hope it’s better than this. D
